Session Drummer Studios

  Stephen MacLachlan


If you're in need of commerical sounding drum tracks then contact me for a free quote.  I have 10 years of professional experience playing in a variety of styles from intimate jazz trios, musical theatre pits to heavy rock bands.  I record in my own purpose-built studio, which is acoustically treated to capture a great drum sound and be versatile to the demands of different styles of music.

I have two studio Gretsch drum kits I record on, a good selection of snare drums and a large variety of Zildjian cymbals.  This flexibility alongside a good understanding of how to tune drums allows me to create the right drum sound for you.  All microphones and preamps are of professional studio quality - Neumann, Shure, Coles, Universal Audio...

Whether or not you know exactly what you want from your drum recording, it's always good to chat about it.  Send me an email - or call me on 07763 741 763 to discuss what you need.

I will give you a free quote for your song(s) and begin recording.  After you hear the track back, amendments can be made and only when it's perfect, do you pay.
